Re: HELP!!! WE NEED A BUS!!! NOW!!!!!!!!!!!

I have just what you're looking for. 1987 International with newly remanufactured diesel engine. New tires and custom roof rack. LEGALLY Tinted windows all around. FOUR fuel tanks. This is great if you're making biodiesel and need a place to store it. Great when finding inexpensive diesel at a truck stop and want to fill up all four tanks for a 2000+ mile range before refill. Quite nice inside but not so much that you cant personalize it a bit to make it yours.
T.F. Hudgins Spinner II oil filtering centrifuge to keep the oil squeaky clean...Same as Big Rigs use. NEVER have to change oil again.
many other extras not normally found on skoolies. for details.

Hi lapeer20m - I know this post is old, but I'm curious about your opinion of the Ford 7.3 being "not so good for veggie". Are you referring to the newer powerstroke 7.3 or the older indirect mechanical injection 7.3? I ask because I have the older style 7.3 in my pickup truck and have been considering WVO conversion.

Reader beware

All information is opinions. All things are relative. Usually most information has a value equal to the price paid. There is no absolute. All diesel engines are good......... Frank
